I know it was super cheesy, but I have to admit that yesterday while walking around Paris (and struggling to take all the following pictures while holding an umbrella), I also couldn’t help but hum to myself, “Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit” – Joe Dassin’s “Champs Elysées.”
Oh ça vaaaa.
Maybe it was the super cliché Paris under the rain moment I was having, or maybe just that the song has been stuck in my head ever since seeing the one-man show, How to Be Parisian in One Hour, but I’ll warn you now: that song is as catchy as an autotuned Britney Spears single. Do not listen unless you want it stuck in your head for the next few days.
Nonetheless, I had to share some of these pictures of random Parisian passerbys going about their life, under the rain here in Paris.
